Blackberry Apple Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal

Gord and I have been obsessed with baked oatmeal for several weeks now. We have been alternating making the Cranberry Apple Baked Oatmeal and the Peanut Butter Apple Baked Oatmeal every week but I was inspired by some blackberries I had in the freezer this week! 

Baked Oatmeal is great to pack ahead for the week, I just warm up at work or on the go in the morning and pair with Greek yogurt! Makes a satisfying and healthy breakfast. 

If your following the 21 Day Fix, we measure out 1 yellow container of oatmeal and 1 red of Greek yogurt.

  • 2 cups steel cut oats

  • 1 cup black berries or other mixed berries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 Apple chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups milk - cow’s milk, soy milk, almond milk, or whatever you prefer
  • Plain Greek yogurt (optional for topping)

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease an 8x8 pan with coconut oil.
  2. Mix together the oats and boiling water in a bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes.
